The Ivy St John's Wood
We always keep a number of tables unreserved throughout the day, allowing you to sample our range of café-style menus at your leisure from breakfast until late, or you can simply pop in for a drink and some nibbles – zucchini fritti and truffle arancini are amongst our favourites.
Open seven days a week, The Ivy St John’s Wood includes outdoor Parisian style street seating, and brings some of the familiarity and charm of The Ivy brand to the already fashionable St John’s Wood.
Unfortunately the chicken in the chicken salad I ordered was very salty so I didnt enjoy my meal.
Birthday dinner for one of our best friends while we are all together here in London. The service was impeccable and the food very fresh and tasty. We all thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
A very good local restaurant. You’ll always meet someone you know at The Ivy, as long as you’re happy with that!!
The food is consistently good although the marinated tuna starter was rather drowned in a sauce ...
Excellent blackened cod!
The only problem was the restaurant was grossly understaffed, maybe because it was Saturday but that was even more reason to have extra serving staff .
Had to ask a few times for various things....
If you are looking for a nice, dressy-casual dinner, this is your spot! The menu has variety and is served with impeccable style. Unfortunately, the restroom is not easily accessible by those with mobility challenges as it is located downstairs. And being seated by the hostess stand, it felt like they were counting down the minutes until our table was available for the next guest.
Really great afternoon tea experience with v friendly staff.
Saturday lunch, so busy, but service not very attentive. Some dishes were commented on to the Manager, who made no comment, which was rather strange, but he did take this dish off the bill.
By early afternoon on Saturday the noise level inside the restaurant was the seventh circle of hell. I was lucky enough to get a table in the shade outside but went through to the toilets and thanked heavens I was not In it. The food and service all good.
Second time this week just as good. great services
Couldn’t fault the food or menu choice, was great tasting and good portion sizes. great services
Lovely food, good menu choice will go again with the wife.
Good food! Amazing service all together a lovely experience.
My favourite one. Vert delicious food and good services
Lovely atmosphere, wonderful food and attentive but not intrusive staff.
It was extremely noisy.
Our original waiter was useless. He couldn’t remember what we ordered and brought the wrong starters.
The young woman manager was very helpful and pleasant.
Food is average. Nothing special. Nice interior and good service but honestly food is nothing that exciting.
Best food. Exceptional service. Perfect place for a business meeting or special occasion.
Amazing. Classy restaurant with outstanding food and ambience
Had a lovely quiet table. Super food and ambience.
Pleasant staff, good atmosphere in a nice design room.
Delicious meal - would certainly go back !!
Good service and nice environment
Excellent meal. Food was outstanding in quality and flavour. Lovely atmosphere and good service. Highly recommend.
We visit the Ivy often and this time the service was way below par. Orders taken incorrectly even some dishes left off completely from our order. Food came out at different times and without garnish. We then had to wait for our friends Seabass that had been totally forgotten, which made all our food cold whilst waiting for the Seabass. It was really awful. What has happened? Hopefully this was a one off. The waiter was apologetic but it seemed he wasnt listening to us. Maybe too many demands and not able to focus? Come in Ivy this is so out of character.
The place is lovely, the location is great, outside terrace seating is nice and the inside decor very nice. The acoustics are a bit disturbing, hard to maintain a conversation so bear that in mind. The service a bit erratic on a Sunday, though there is plenty of staff, seemed a bit uncoordinated but not bad overall. The food was good.
The Bloody Mary trolley and mixologist were a marvel. Wonderful culinary theatre splendidly executed
Wonderful brunch to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. Most enjoyable and quite special in the little side room. Thank you so much.
Mislabeling of menu items including fresh squeezed juices that are bottled. Service was inattentive. Food quality was average
Crab linguine was very basic ! Crab from a tin ? Starter mozzarella and prawns were good ! Cod was good too !
The waiter when lifting plates after we ate food turned over my empty coke bottle into my linguine plate to carry both !
Sorry to say it was very distasteful and unseemly of a proper restaurant!
I have been to this Ivy many times and there has always been a slight problem
And I always say the Ivy In Marylebone Lane is better
But this time everything we had was excellent and we had a good service as well
I’ve been so many times and I love it
Highly recommend it.
FABULOUS! Superb food, lovely attentive professional staff, great ambience. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Great food and service, we were very well looked after.
This is a great place for a friend's together very nice atmosphere.
Excellent food and service. Buzzy atmosphere. Really enjoyed the evening.
I cannot fault the staff they were excellent. We ordered tuna and parfait for starters which were good - the tuna was particularly good. We ordered fillet steak for our mains (rare and medium rare) as a treat - its so tricky to get perfect at home - with bernaise sauce, green beans and fried zucchini.
As usual, always excellent on every level which is why I always enjoy coming back. David Austin
We had a lovely time. It can be a bit pricey though.
Very lovely and polite staff. They even offered free drinks when they made a wrong food order which only gives us 10 mins delay in delivery.
Great food, service and atmosphere! Beautiful restaurant that always meets the mark!
Nice place, food good, service a bit hit and miss but although no fault of The Ivy , screaming kids, and other kids just messing about did spoil our brunch. Def go back but probably for dinner .
Unfortunately service as not as good as the west end one but still good for a local brunch. Bar was closed at 11 for a brandy.
